Abu Dhabi is becoming a notable center for crypto and blockchain enterprises. Its strategic location and government policies have drawn top crypto firms from across the globe.

Furthermore, the Abu Dhabi Global Market introduced a virtual platform in 2022 to link individuals with virtual asset firms, strengthening its status as a crypto hub.

Several crypto firms started operating in the UAE around this time to tap into the region’s ambitions as a crypto hub.

Abu Dhabi’s $2B Bet on Web3

Abu Dhabi, the largest emirate in the UAE, also launched a $2b initiative to support startups in Web3 and blockchain technology. The move demonstrates its dedication to nurturing the expansion of the crypto and blockchain sector in the area.

Last year, Abu Dhabi Global Market rolled out rules to make it easier for blockchain startups to set up shop in its international free trade zone. The aim is to attract investment and make local markets more competitive and efficient.

To set up a DLT foundation, founders must file a signed Charter to the Registrar and state that all corresponding laws and financial requirements have been fulfilled.

The capital’s neighbor Dubai has also enticed numerous crypto firms to its booming digital asset ecosystem. The hands-on approach of Dubai’s Virtual Asset Regulatory Authority sets a global example for regulator-industry cooperation.
